Teaching the Teachers Online
Admit it, you’re tired of your class embarrassing you by knowing how to use Geometer’s Sketchpad and Fathom better than you do and it’s getting old. Key Curriculum Press, the creator of both programs can tutor you online with a great series of professional development seminars on how to make the most of each program and transform your science or math class. On top of basics like using Geometer’s Sketchpad in the middle school and teaching algebra with the program, there’re classes on teaching statistics with Fathom. The Web classes start on December 1st, cost $225 and count as two professional-level academic credits from the University of California Berkeley Extension. That is if you pass.
